My name is Marisha, I’m from Baltimore Md. I’ve been natural for about 6 years. I started my journey from a short cut hairstyle I let grow out. What really motivated me to go natural was the fact that when I would put relaxer in my hair, it wouldn’t really take at the roots. I would still have waves at at the root. Which made me think I had naturally wavy hair, but I don’t, I have curly hair. Throughout the process I’ve cut my hair three times. But my goal now is to allow it to grow to shoulder length. I feel the longer it gets, the more it changes and I can create different looks. Like in this picture it looks short but my hair is actually jawline length. This style makes me want to cut my hair this length but I’m staying strong with waiting it out. I love how versatile my hair can be and the fact that with color it’s more healthy than when I was relaxed. I’m able to learn a lot and share it with others based off of my experience. I’m proud to say I’ve got many to convert over to being natural & love it. It takes patiences, trial and error but it’s definitely worth it.
